ALBUM RELEASE // Ryley Walker ‘Primrose Green’ Out Now Worldwide, European Tour Starts 8th April

“This is clearly someone reaching for their essence, on a mission to follow a philosophy rather than to slavishly recreate a mood.”
-Uncut (9/10)

‘Primrose Green’ sounds exactly like late-’60s Tim Buckley. I can only assume that Paul Rothchild manned the boards and Van Dyke Parks rolled the joints while this was being recorded.”
- Grantland

“With ‘Primrose Green’, Walker has developed into a thoughtful singer-songwriter following a tangled thread, one picked at by the likes of Tim Buckley, John Martyn, Van Morrison…”
- NPR Music

Primrose Green, the debut album from Chicago’s six-string wunderkind Ryley Walker is out now worldwide. To celebrate release day, Ryley plays an in-store at Permanent Records in Chicago tonight at 7pm with more info here: http://www.permanentrecordschicago.com/

You can preview Ryley live with a beautiful session recorded at SXSW via KRT above or here on YouTube. To our European friends – Ryley is headed your way in just a few days. Full dates and ticket links after the jump.

WATCH // A Place To Bury Strangers Shares “What We Don’t See” Video Dir. By Jimmy Fusil, EU Tour Starts Tomorrow

“APTBS recorded Transfixiation, and to us it’s a cubist self-portrait of their live presence; distorted (but accurate!), it captures the essence of their sound from multiple perspectives. Those three aren’t just loud, they move a LOT OF AIR. They move a lot of things, making and breaking them in the process”
- Jimmy Fusil [PopSoda]

A Place To Bury Strangers‘ new album, Transfixiation, is out now on Dead Oceans. Premiering this morning via Drowned In Sound, the video directed by Jimmy Fusil [PopSoda], invites us into the band’s practice from the point of view of the space itself. Watch it above, on YouTube, or for our international viewers on DailyMotion. APTBS also begin their European tour tomorrow night in Dublin at Whelan’s with September Girls.

ALBUM RELEASE // Dub Thompson ’9 Songs’ Out Now Worldwide, Tour With Ought Starts End Of June




Today Dub Thompson‘s new album 9 songs is out worldwide! The band, Matt Pulos on guitar and Evan Laffer on drums, recorded the album with Foxygen‘s Jonathan Rado at a rented house here in our hometown of Bloomington, Indiana. With no one song on the album the same, the two simultaneously draw from many predecessors including Can and Kraftwerk, Big Black, Pere Ubu, and more.

In honor of the release we are letting the band take over @DeadOceans on Twitter all today. To follow “Dub Oceans” click here.

Get the new album via iTunes, your local record store, SC Distribution, and through Amazon.

Critics praise the new album:

“Whole generations of basement-tape shenanigans are baked into their lurching, overdriven sound, alternatingly stripped-down and blown-out: Big Black, Liars, the Fall, and even the Burning Sensations’ version of Jonathan Richman’s “Pablo Picasso,” whose ropy bass line and sardonic delivery directly inform “Dograces”‘ Roto-Rooter blues”

- SPIN

“There is so much going on here — old-school funk, the Red Hot Chili Peppers before they sucked, Tame Impala, Kraut, trip-hop beats, convenience store muzak, old psychedelic records in the dollar bin at your local record store”

- Flavorwire

“throat-grabbing, shit-kicking intensity”

- Line of Best Fit

“It’s an impressive bit of music that hints at the band’s scrappy inhibition, and its allure all but comes from how unserious Dub Thompson take themselves”

- Pitchfork

The Dub dudes start their tour with Ought [Constellation] at the end of this month in Scottsdale, Arizona at Pub Rock.
